ITTTINU I I FAIIMINO IMIU.KMKNTS. The best rule Is to keep farm tools tioused when not in use. If. however, .hey have been loft out until now, uo tiino should bo lost in getting them ,n. The wastage from exposuro of ?ostly implements is enormous every rear, and it is responsible for consider able of tho bard times that some farm ?rs complain of. No matter how soon tools are rusted out. the farmer cannot sseapo pitying for them. WAlOl yi AHI KIIS ros I'KJS. Iiecau.su pigs huddle together at night, and thus keep thomsolvcs warm, many think that shelter is less impor tant for thoni than for other stock. Their feeding-plnep, especially, should .thvay.s bo covered and protected from winds. 'The pig has little hair on its body, and is more aoiiaitivo to cold than any other farm stock. After be ing huddled up under cover all night, their exposure in feeding is all the more likoly to bo injurious.

In an ordinary tvell-lrained apple orchard two or three step-laddois of various heights will enable the orehardist to gather his prop witli liltlo wastage, and witlt comparative ease to himsolf. The ma terials for a stop-laddur cost little, anil almost any farmer can easily learn to make one, TAI.VKS lit NXIX WITH cows. At this season, cows that calved in Spring give only it small amount of mill;, especially if duo to drop a calf next Spring. There is little pressure on the cow's bag, and she will not on ly show no auxiety to havo the calf ro lievo it, bill will generally drivo it away if it attempts to suck.

Sow is the time to turn tho rum with ft Hook of owes to have them drop their lambs in April or early in May. if the ewes are all in good flesh, they will mato pretty evenly. When n ewe has mated with the buck, slio should bo placed in a separate enclosure. Those so poor thai they refuse to breed are probably not worth winter ing. The late iumli which limy might bo induced to breed will not bo worth much, and the owe a year from now will probably depreciato in valuo. The rapidity with which sheep run tlown after passing their prims is tho great est drawback In tho sheep-breeding in dustry. RIM'S IX KNCil.ASI). The oatnnd potato crops in England nud Ireland are turning out much poor er than was expected. 'This means an increased demand for American wheal. Our own oat and potato crops are be low the average, so that however high the price may go in Kuropo they arc not likely to bo largely exported In -Urs country the scarcity ot any favor ite article of food, as potatoes, has less effect than m Europe, in diverting con sumption to something else. Our peo ple generally eat what they like best, regardless' of price, a pretty sure sign that workingmen hero are belter paid than anywhere else in the world. I.KAV1NO PAIISXII'S TO KIIF.EZK. It is a mistake to harvest parsnips too early. This is a crop which slight freezing decidedly iniprores in fpialily, taking off a rank tas which roots grown on rich ground often have. Parsnips nro often left ia the ground all Winter without being injured; but they liiusl be got out very early in the Spring, as after new growth begini tho root becomes strong in taste, and even poisonous. After one or two frosts, enough should be got in tha cellar to Ust through the Winter, when those left in the garden cannot be dug. It Is nooossitry to cover them well wllh soil, to prevent tho roots from drying up or top from aproutlng on account of too high temperature. KCONOMI.IXO HEAT. Coal is advancing in price, and it be hooves nil who purchase fuel to moke It go as far as possible. There Is much difference In stoves in this respect, somo burning coal to ashes, with little waste. A ooal aiftor to save the cinders Is an Important item in household econ omy. nitti ns Important ns this Is banking around cellar walls, and stop ping cruviceR above the basement. By theso moans heat niuy bo kept In, though it is not safe to do this nt the expense of thorough ventilation. Many farmhouses, built a few yonrs ago, In flush times for money, are larger than their owners now wish they were. It costs too much to warm Iheiu, aside from the debts too often incurred in their construction. CAIIltOTS FOB HOltSK.S. It is not iilono nor chiefly the nutri tion in carrots that makes Ihcm valua ble feed for horses and other stock in Winter. They have nn admirable ef fect in keeping llio bowels open, loos ening the hie, and thus promoting healthful circulation of the blood. A stalled horse kept on dry feed through the Winter becomes bilious, just as hu man beings do who lead sedentary lives. We havo not got into the habit of dosing horses for biliousness,' nor need wo. A mess of carrots daily, with half tho usual amount of grain, will keep a horse in better working order than oats without the roots. In most places carrots can bo bought by the quantity at about half llio price of oats, and pay the grower well ai that. KXAMI'I.K KOK FA UM Kits' HOYS. The Lyons (X. V.) Republican tells a very interesting story of how a boy in rhelps, X. V., successfully managed a largo farm. 'Two years ago ho was left by llio death of his father with a farm of ninety acres, burdened by n mortgage of $1100, ami a widowed mother, to support. Ho whs then fifteen years old. 'Taking the advice of a neighbor, the mother allowed the boy to run things in his own way. Ho has developod a natural genius for success ful farm management, which includes, of course, some pretty hard work. He has plowed, cultivated and harvestod good crops, has run a small milk dairy, has repainted llio house and paid oft' the entire amount of tho debt. Last Winter he taught school, and thus earned some extra money. Hi his spare timo be writes interestingly for local papers, and Is koeping up a sys tem of t'hautauqua readings. This young man will bo heard from hero after. Wo would gladly givo his name, but tho Lyons paper does not furnish it. The only caution needed by this inodol young farmer is, not to overtax himsolf, and thus destroy what prom ises now to be a lifo of great useful lies. American VuUivntnr. A Fall Picture.

Commodoro Vnnderbilt's thorough ways of doing business are proverbial. At one time some of his laborers ap plied to havo tho:r time reduced to the eight-hour system. The Commodore ordered thoir time reduced to seven hours and paid llieiu prorata. Not liking this turn of affairs, one Irishman said to another: "Mike, I wish the Commodoro was in li !" "Falx," answered Mike, "that same wouldn't help yon, for he'd have conthrol o' the place in a week!" Troy 1'reas. A Bootblack's Success.
